Useful German phrases for the World Cup.

In case you live under a rock--The World Cup started yesterday. It's being played in Deutschland, so our Irish friend at Blogh an Seanchi has posted a useful guide for non-German speaking tourists:
German made easy:

Officer, would you mind taking your arm from around my neck as I am having some trouble catching my breath...
Lass los, du idiot.

Can I have four large jugs of your strongest beer over here please, landlord. And a glass of white wine for the lovely lady...
Vier Bier hier bitte, und eine Liebfrauenmilch für die liebe Frau.
